    Size/Prime a few cases when starting off with a progressive and put them aside. You can plug them back into the process when a bad/odd case screws up the priming station and continue loading.

    Posted in the large reloading bench thread as well. And yes, itís always clean.

    Bench in the garage:


    Thought I had one of the small bench in the basement. Seems I have to search for one.

    Actually, after the initial investment curve, I WAS saving money. Until Sandy Hook. After a year when components became available again, pricing has really never been the same.

    Another bench from plans linked in post 8. Very happy with it. I left off the cabinet doors and used large bolts under the feet to enable leveling. Magnet strip on the side to hold the tools for die and press adjustments, etc.

    Here is my mobile operation for when I want to sit and listen to whatever TV show my wife is watching. Threw it together from some scrap laying around in the shop. Still working on the permanent cabinet/bench that will go in the laundry room.

    I don't suppose the OP looked at the sticky at the top of this page?

    Pictures disappear from old threads regardless of hosting services. Doesnít mean the thread doesnít have any value. Thereís more to look at in that thread than this one.

    See where the RCBS APS bench primer is? I removed that, and mounted a Lee quick mount with a Lee APP bolted to it! Now the bench primer shares that spot. stuck on a shelf at the moment.....

    GWS, is that your other hobby stashed above in the backround? If it is I feel your pain, so many models so little time.
